Reimagining ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’

I’m a huge fan of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and consider it one of the greatest TV shows of all time. I love this new comic book series from BOOM! Studios that reboots BTVS and reimagines what the characters would be like if they’re coming of age now instead of the 90s. The characters are still familiar, but it’s fun to see how their personalities and situations have changed due to a different set of experiences and access to resources that weren’t around or were difficult to come by in the 90s.

For instance, as one comment on a Facebook post puts it, some of the things that were nerdy or alternative in the 90s are more mainstream now, and it’s easier to find people who have similar interests thanks to online resources and social media. How would this different milieu change Buffy, Willow, Xander, and the rest of the gang?
